STEM Exploration Series

The Center for Educational Outreach works in partnership with JHU and community based organizations to offer an opportunity for Barclay students and families to explore a variety of STEM fields.  Participants work directly with faculty, staff, graduate students, and community scientists as they learn about a science and engineering field through a series of hands-on, meaningful tasks.  The STEM Exploration Series for the 2018-2019 school year include:

  • Explore Structures! – Fall, 2018
    • Civil Engineering with Engineers without Borders
    • Closed to Barclay students participating in the CFA After-School Program
  • Explore Machines! – Spring, 2019
    • Mechanical Engineering with Engineers without Borders
